SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD RELEASED TO THE SHARED LIST
Liam is active, loving, caring and playful. His physical condition and development are good and he is able to walk independently. Liam’s gross motor skills are good, but his fine motor skills are delayed significantly. His language development is delayed, but he can speak some simple word such as aunt, cracker and hungry. He uses words to express his needs, can imitate words and understands what “no” means. Liam appears to understand directions well and can be seen following directions in his video. His intellectual development is said to be behind that of his peers, but his caretakers do not believe this is a permanent condition.
Liam has a good appetite and has bowel and bladder control, but needs to be reminded to use the bathroom by an adult. He is able to eat and dress by himself. Liam plays well with peers and helps take care of the younger children. He smiles happily when his caretakers hold him or give him a toy.
It is hoped that Liam’s delays will improve with the love and support of a family.
